The official narrated that two SS3 students of the institution invited the victim to their room to punish him, but ended killing him.

”What I gathered was that two SS3 students who just finished their WAEC and were waiting for NECO examination invited Felix Aliyu who is an Assistant Headboy to one of their rooms to punish him.

“According to findings, these two students tortured him with electric iron till he died in their hands. First, we heard that the victim was ironing clothes and he was electrocuted, but we later gathered that it was not so. It was a case of murder. I learnt the two SS3 students suspected to be behind the act were arrested.”

When contacted, one of the relatives of the victim who did not want her name in print, confirmed the incident but said she was not in a position to talk to the press.

However, the unidentified chairman of the school’s Parents Teachers Association (PTA) who posted on the PTA WhatsApp platform said the late Felix died as a result of being punished by a Senior Secondary School 3 student.

The PTA Chairman said the suspected senior student did an illegal electricity connection in the room where the deceased student had a contact with the iron bed while being punished for an undisclosed offence when he got electrocuted and eventually died.

Efforts to speak with the Kaduna State Police Command over the incident were not successful.
